this much [11 mos]

After a wonderful post from Shawna at styleberryblog and some other reading recently, I did my first shoot in Manual today! It's a shame I've had this camera for a year and am just now getting around to learning to use it... but oh well!

So here it is, the best one :) The focus is off, but it's an improvement... took me forever to get the settings right, but I'm pretty happy with it!

He's turning into such a little boy :)

The most annoying part was trying to figure out to to get it to focus correctly with a self-timer... need to work on that! Any tips?

I also need to update the background on my blog so I can post pictures bigger without it cutting them off!!

Love, C

first, switch to BBF then put a bottle exactly where you are going to be & focus on that. Then put the timer on & make sure you are exactly where the bottle is (distance from the camera) & viola! love this!!! :)

Shawna, after playing more after I did this post I remembered the manual focus switch... haha... still have a ways to go!!

But the bottle idea is good! And I just checked out BBF and figured out how to do it on my Nikon! Awesome!!!

Good job! Looks great :)The fact that you are even attempting manual is more than all of the new "professional" photographers are doing. LOL. Miss you!
